This one here is my twin when it comes to swimming. We both could stay in a pool 8 hours a day, no problem.
This one here is almost as hardcore. I remember taking him swimming when he was only a few weeks old and watching him float with only one of Sweet Mans finger holding him up. Where did that baby go? Almost 12 years old this one. Cheez and wiz. 7th grade next year. That is almost grown. I. Am. Not. Ready.
He had the same literacy teacher in 4th and 6th grade and she is moving schools after this year. Today I hugged her neck and balled like a baby. She took such good care of Wy when he was the new kid at school and has always been so supportive of him and his interest. We will miss her so much, but I think perhaps I was crying a bit for myself as well. My baby will be a man all too soon.
This weekend we swam in big pools and little pools and pretty much both were wonderful. In fact I think I am going to get one of those huge blow-up pools so that I can float around on a raft and read. It may not be high-class but honey child I will love it so much. Any pool is better than no pool.
Don’t Sweet Man and I make cute kids?
